I need a bit of advice. I am making a flag display box for a flag my wife’s father had on his front porch. We decided to take it down and put it away as it was getting very tattered and worn. The display box is an isoleses trangle and has some odd angles at the corners. The top angles are about 43.5degrees and the botton angles are about 23.5 degrees.
I cut the angles as close as I could but there is still a small gap on the inside that I want to close up but I fear that if I get too agressive I will create more problems that I solve. I thought I could make a jig that fits the frame by nailing some culls to a plywood base that fit tightly around the frame. Then perhaps I could sand the corners with some fine paper wrapped around a thin scrap of wood by holding two fo the pieces against the culls while i work the sand paper back and forth between the pieces. This would sand the adjoing angles at the same time and maybe result in a fine fitting joint.
Does anyone have any ideas?
